Poor Eric Sloane, so misunderstood
“I think in some ways I'm a failure because people think I'm a painter of barns and a writer of nostalgia,” he says. “It's not what I've been trying to do. I hate nostalgia. It's a dreaded disease.” Hmm, I don't know what would make people think that!

Wink  Poor Eric Sloane, so misunderstood
Here's an excellent counterpoint to Sloane's Spirit of '76.

https://confusedwoodworker.wordpress.com...ic-sloane/

Quote:"If Sloane were alive, I would point out to him that most modern Americans spend far more time at work than their ancestors did."

"Another issue I have with that comment is Sloane himself. Sloane worked as an artist for his entire life, and later wrote books on subjects like colonial America, woodworking, and barn construction. From what research I’ve done on his life, I can’t find anywhere a history of Sloane working at physical jobs such as farming or construction, yet he seems at ease telling everybody else that they don’t work hard enough. While art work and writing are certainly worth jobs, they are hardly physical labor."

We've had times when we worked two and three jobs that just payed the bills and allowed for a little fun like downtown movies and Dr. Peppers. My own father never worked so much, and yet he held the same beliefs as Sloane. The younger generation doesn't know how to work? Sorry, you guys are wrong.

I read it but I didn't think it was racist. He is horrible at writing "black" dialect though.

Partly the racist comments, which he flippantly justified. (his comments are in two different threads, but primarily in Enlightenment .....).

Partly his violation of the repetitive post rule ("One person making repetitive posts or creating many topics repeating the same basic opinion can interfere with others' use of Chase Chat. If this becomes disruptive, it is a violation of the ground rules. ") accentuated by his admission he has been trolling all of us with excessive deceptive posts not meant to be constructive (per Deeep: "Mentally unstable people we're basically ignored and considered harmless within the old First Nations culture. This is the skin I chose to hide under. I have had on-and-off running dialogue with many of you, innocently pandering my snake oil as a guide to check your progress. Two of you, the dialogue was sincere, I needed to keep track of you. The ramblings and crazy talk was my way of keeping the few good hints I dropped as bait from being seriously considered by those who weren't as far.") I considered his tactics to be disruptive of constructive dialogue, and wasteful of forum members time.

He has a six-month timeout. He is welcome back next season if he, and everyone else, fails to find the chest this season. Good luck everyone, including Deeep.
